3 star rating: Worth doing December 2016

The cruise takes 90 mins but 30 mins spent moored on the lake to fish for trout....none caught. Boat large and comfortable and free tea and coffee available and warmed muffins later. The carvings were better than expected. Views of lake better on a blue sky day.
